Palm Pilot Pendant
The 3COM Palm Pilot III based CMM Teach Pendant is an ongoing project on increasing the ergonomics of use for operators. Currently, operators must return to the CMM control computer to read the display or enter new commands. The intent of the Teach Pendant is to allow the operator to read or enter data remotely. The device is connected to RS232 serial ports on the CMM motion control computer.
